Benedict Mason came to composition relatively late, having studied film-making after graduating from King's College, Cambridge. His work embraces many aspects of post-modern diversity, including electronics, exploration of polyrhythms and video. Of particular importance in Mason's work are spatial considerations and since 1993 he has writen a series of works for specific venues, generically entitled 'Music for Concert Halls'. These works exploit the architectural and acoustical properties of the building, such as the Clarinet Concerto, written for the Royal Alebrt Hall, in which only the soloist appears on stage while the members of the ensemble are positioned around the auditorium.
